Might And Magic Heroes VI Crashes And Burns, Ubi Fixing

Oh gosh, delivering bad news is always so difficult. I never know how to soften the blow. Good news first? No, no, that never works. Oh, I know: everything that's ever mattered to you will be gone one day and also Might and Magic Heroes VI has been nigh-unplayable for more than 24 hours. Phew, much better. The rather disturbingly lengthy period of downtime (especially…

Fifty Shades Of Darkness: Might & Magic Heroes VI

Shades of Darkness is a standalone expansion for Heroes of Might & Magic: Heroes VI, originally due at the end of this month but recently delayed until May 3, by which point you'll have completely forgotten about all of the delicious lore contained in the development diary below. It's extraordinary stuff and quite possibly the most dramatic video of its type in existence. If the…

UDon’tPlay: UbiDRM Servers Wobble During Steam Sale

The good thing about always online DRM is, well, nothing. The problem with always online DRM is, well, everything. Perhaps the silver lining to the cloud that is Ubisoft's UPlay system - the infrastructure for its DRM, DLC and other faintly sinister words which begin with D - being offline for a large chunk of the weekend is that it might cause important people to…

Legitimate Ubisoft Games Won’t Work Tues

With Ubisoft's recent announcement that Rayman: Origin's splendid arrival on PC will have the barest DRM for the download version (a single activation - a pointless waste of everyone's time still, of course) and the retail version having none at all (although Ubi have yet to get back to me over whether it will work without the disc in the drive), it makes you wonder…

Close To HOMM: Might & Magic Heroes VI

The highly anticipated (by me) Might and Magic Heroes VI is out October 11th and, look here, a new trailer has emerged. I was hoping it'd show some detail about the blood and tears reputation system, which might shake up the turn-based gathering and killing, but instead it's mostly earnest humanoids spouting gubbins like: "You have served your emperor and your dragon." I'm going to…

Might & Magic Heroes VI Unearths A Demo

Ah yes, that nagging feeling at the base of my skull was there for a reason: there was a demo of Might & Magic Heroes VI released this weekend. A portly 4.24gb download (some 22,000 Peggles, if my maths be remembered correctly) contains three campaign maps from the full game, and therefore a decent chunk of game time. Why not have a read of Alec's…

Might & Magic Double-Whammy

Here's a Might & Magic two-news-stories-for-one for you. Below we have the latest trailer for Might IV Heroes Of & Magic or whatever it's called this time. But then there's a surprise - the formerly console-only Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes is now making its way to PC next month. There are details about that below as well.

Feature: HoMM is where the heart is

Bountiful: Might & Magic Heroes VI Preview

The series formerly known as Heroes of Might & Magic returns, with a confusingly rearranged name, to a post-King's Bounty landscape. Without access to publishers' long and tedious spreadsheets, I of course couldn't begin to guess whether 1C's good-natured, wilfully silly turn-based strategy/semi-roleplaying game presents any kind of financial threat to HoMM. KB's certainly made hay during HoMM's six-year absence, however. Now daddy's coming back…

Might & Magic 25th Anniversary Trailer, Beta

QUESTION: Steam claims you can "play the beta now" but it LIES. Is it US only or something? The Might & Magic series is twenty-five years old. That is a fact that makes me as Old As Time. To celebrate the series' agedness Ubisoft (for they own the name these days) have put out a trailer, which you can see below. There's also word that…

Might & Magic: Heroes VI Coming This June

The release date of Might & Magic: Heroes VI (much like Total War: Shogun 2, the publisher has decided on a titular reversal) has been confirmed as June 21st. Why be excited about Heroes VI? Good question. The answer is that the arrival of the King's Bounty series would appear to have woken up the Heroes developers like a hot fork to the unmentionables. You…
